About the Cover
The cover is a symbol of balance that came out of a small-group discussion on
nonviolence culture at the 1992 Nv Gathering. Don't let its symmetry and
closure fool you, it is only an approximate model, to be modified or
discarded when its usefulness has passed. In particular some felt that
emotion deserved its own segment. The boundaries in this diagram are, of
course, illusory, as are all boundaries. The colours were chosen to be
equilaterally opposed on a colour wheel.
